  • 200g (7oz) Sweet cured, streaky bacon rashers
  • 2 Large potatoes, skin left on and cut into small chunks
  • 2 Carrots, peeled and sliced
  • 100g (4oz) Spring cabbage, chopped into large pieces
  • 50g (2oz) Purple sprouting broccoli, well trimmed
  • 1 Shallot, sliced
  • 12g (½oz) Butter
  • Black pepper


Preheat the grill.


Place the potatoes and carrots in a large pan of boiling water. Cook for 10 minutes, add the ‘greens’ and continue to cook for a further 5 minutes.*

Place the bacon rashers and shallot in a large frying pan and cook until the bacon becomes crispy.

Meanwhile, drain the vegetables and either mix together or mash to combine well.

Add the potato mixture to the pan and roughly spread out. Dot with the butter and season. Place under a hot grill and cook until browned.

Either serve from the pan or turn out onto a plate and cut into wedges.

Serve with your favourite ketchup or chutney or make a nutty herb pesto by whizzing together some hazelnuts, olive oil, seasoning, basil, mint and parsley.

Additional Notes

This is also a great recipe for using up any leftover cooked vegetables – Just heat through the cooked vegetables for a few minutes in the microwave, roughly chop/mash together and use in the recipe after stage 1 *
